number is goldman a proxyor anything or is it jusust a goldmamanstor? does it porten anything? >> in our vview, goldman is goldman and it's not a oxy for ththe financial sector. you take retail bks in the u.s., for example,e expect themo come out and makake bstantialrite-offs due to the fact that we se unemploymement ssing 10% befo ye-end. bsequently, goldman is goldn.n. they h have mademomoney, as the former speakersaid, on the tradining book. some of their competitors may have made a few bucks s on thei trading book,, b but it's goldmn story. >> s what happenened we get t better than expted numberers out,christiaian,rom bank of americor for citi this week becausepresumamably, they're muh more reflective othe wiwider onomy. >> y yes, exacy. then w we have a huge sururpriso
the up -- if w we have a surpri to the upside then we e will hae a reflectionn the broer u.s. economy and then that cod be an importatant sign for equitie to rally qte signicantly up from current lels becausethat would shshow tha u.s. consumers d the u.s. banks o or such is not much under pressu as we expepect and the marke expects an genererallyook at the pricic earngs that bank of ameca is currently trading.. that would be a a -- first o of l, a surprise. bua very portantndicator ofhe true statate of the u.s. econom so -- t quitite frankly, i donot think that's goingng to be the case >> what do y you hink, rort? beuse do you agree that there's lot of -- yo notes sayy look, there's still nsiderable cash on thehe sidelines here. could ere be a triggerer into the earnings seaso to brin that intoo play? >> well,l, i tnk somef that is comingn tomatically. we see a lot of pension plans who because of the fal in the
equity mkets, t they're below their recommendeded asset allocation t to equitieses. ey held off rebalancingg until th consusultants told them tt wawater was safe for swimmingg about mid m march when policie out of the u.s. told us that the financial system wasn'going to cocome to an end. they'v've set u a system where they'l'll be doing systetrades ininto tech equities torebalan. these are e going tgo on f about simonths, we think. the counter to that is ththe induststrial sidand the consnsumer, e grereen shootare turning g a litt brown in the u.s. so we e think going forrd for the nexext three or four yes, you'll have e rallies like we' had and d then there going down. >> robert, speaking of green shoots siapore rose to t the

markets a asia evewhere. in general,l, we beeve thatasia will take e the leadad simimply the factcthat their debt leveve bothon the governmnment siside, the private houhold side, ass wellll, is muclower compared to rope and the u.s ani agree with the former speaker that the tha inin the next thrhree or ur years, we're going to see equitity market trade sidedeways. however, we believe tha equy markets in the u. will go lower during t this fa after the earnings s seasonas ended cause we believe we'll see a a dole dip in n the development of the economy, bot in the u. anand in europe so this upswin of recovovery we have been talking ababout all is spring is more yellow eds than actually green shoots. >> robert, i it'scott in the u.s. if the financial resultsome inn better than n expect or the results from t the financials i perhaps a better wa to say it, could thahat reverse may the overriding s sentimentn the rket right now thahat just seems
to be that th market i going to go lower over th nex few mohs? >> su. yoknow, the all-clear signall on the fancials will certaiainly lp. you know, the fst results out were alcoa which were betetter than excted,ut most of that wasith vevery good cocostcuttin. soso, you know, if yo look at te last earnings seaeason in the u.u.s., sothing like 68%% of companiess reporng surprise positively, , but wthink it might be more lilion like 60%. this could be a decent season. weon't see thearket heheading down t to newew lowssn the u.s.a great that the outlooks beer than in asiaia. we runun an asianan fund.d. >> thanknksery much,indeed, for that, robert hhowe and christia,

and january when washington was selling t their budgetet, they not thininking tha unemplploymet was going to hit 10%nd now they're saying thahat it' going to. so i i take everything w with a grain of lt. bucertainly, getting t those cocomments think could allow us to c continue to rallyly again y following on the gains we had sterday.y. >> judd, you don't think thehers a ---- nececessarily an inflati story, but youu hate treasuries. why? >> wwell, jt because i thihink that relative to corporate bonds and relatative to theeturns that you can get from som decent dividedend yieldg stocks, i thk the 3. in u. treasusury bonds, it's nottnecessary to inst there. remember, the bondnds rallied a ton n because of the factt that they we a flight to ququality. and i i think that asterisk premiums decreasee little bit,t that c could put treasasuries ur pressure a almostore than the threat of inflation. remembmber, we'r basicallyly rh back around to where the yieiel was there bk in october. and the eity market is in the

we're saying thehe sa ththing, it's a m matter o timingg and rerelative and i'm momore of a trader t th long-term m investorn this case. so as i look at it in the short-term, i think yoyou'll ha an oortunity to purche bonds wh they have a better yield than they do now. we're e pretty close to thehe s pies there. >> hey, judd, this is chrtine. inerms of strategegy, one sector you'll fd compellings ything health h care related.. y is that? >> i i'm a bitof a contrararian here and looking at history. when we e go back to 1993,3, wn the saberr was raled, a lotf those health cacare stocks turd out toto be prettyy decentt y. ththese stocks,his year in february whehen the dget was announced, they y sold off. they l lost the -- rememember, this sector suld be somewt recessioion proo or quote/unqnqe
